New minister of Communications, Ali Isa Pantani, on Saturday described a story carried by The Nation newspaper on his maiden press briefing as “misleading”
The newspaper had reported that the minister said he would lift 50 million Nigerians out of poverty in line with a mandate from President Muhammadu Buhari.
However, in a tweet the minister stated: “This story by The Nation Newspaper is not true and also misleading. I have not said so. Discard it, please. I am only studying the Ministry now. After that, we will make our Strategic Roadmap available for Nigerians to read. PS (Permanent Secretary) spoke on the matter as an advice, not a resolution.”
